Right next to Reds Stadium and easy walk from Downtown Hotels and Fountain Square. Pretty good food with many micro brew selections. Good for lunch or dinner.

My spouse had been there for lunch with a great view of the Ohio River, but we weren't so lucky for dinner and had to choose whether to sit at the bar or wait 75 minutes for a table. Hunger won! Both the beer and the food were great. I had pork roast; my wife loved the fish tacos. Perhaps... More

We had a really nice dinner on the terrace overlooking the river. Dinner was well prepared and the service was good. Definitely a repeat!

My wife and I live in the Dayton area but frequent Cincinnati. We try to eat here every time we are in the area. Awesome, laid back environment but with an upscale feel. View of the river is great, and sitting outside when the weather is nice is very relaxing. The service is always exceptional, and the food and beer... More

Visited Moerlien Lager House in conjunction with Cincinnati Reds baseball game. Atmosphere and beer were very good. Food was average - at best. Unfortunately we were seated under some vent with condensation dripping from the ceiling. Though we were moved to different table - we got to watch the servers walking throughout the restaurant with towels on the end of... More

Four things I love about Moerlein House: the view of the river makes eating very enjoyable; Every dish I have ever ordered is full of flavor and hearty portions; their garlic cheese fries are worth the trip alone; its location is easily accessible and near other activities

Nice view of the river. It is a the banks, which is a hip location too. The fare is varied but standard for a large brewery/bar/ restaurant. I eat twice there. They have a good salmon salad and chicken salad. Prices are fair. It took sometime to be served, just because it is a large location.

The heritage of Cincinnati's storied brewing history comes alive along the banks of the Ohio River at this world-class restaurant and brewery. Prominently situated in the dynamic Smale Riverfront Park, the Moerlein Lager House offers a guest experience unlike any other—a working microbrewery producing a full line of Moerlein craft brews, and delectable fare featuring grain spent breads, hand-carved sandwiches, and smoked rotisserie meats… foods reminiscent of those served in the city’s celebrated 19th century beer gardens.
